Art du Jour 92


Food. Drink. Sleep. Books. They are all drugs. (Fay Weldon)

It has been over six months since my last art du jour post. I’ve missed that drug.  See, I would add Netflix and Making Stuff to that list.  I admit my addiction to all of the above.

These are the coffee pictures for my daughter.  Her colours are grey and turquoise.  There is a lot of black and white in her kitchen and I know she likes purple, so fingers crossed she will be happy with these.  I am trying to be less chaotic with my creations but maybe it’s just not in me to make something calm and normal.

It’s a lazy Sunday here, perfectly gorgeous fall weather.  We went for a stroll down to the mall and back in search of rimmer spices for Caesars.  Do we have our priorities straight or what?

When we started this ‘update the look of your ’70’s house’ project I professed to not like grey.  Then I said I didn’t like turquoise and I was really done with purple.  Then I chose pelican grey for the master bedroom and both bathrooms and NOW I’m thinking turquoise and purple are really nice and maybe those should be my colour splashes in the bedroom and forget royal blue or red.

So I guess my point here is you can believe what I say today but don’t assume it will be equally true tomorrow.  I’ve made up my mind to never make up my mind.  Or some such nonsense.  Posting this now before I rethink the whole thing.

Happy autumn Sunday.

  1. Absolutely stunning – this combination of duo colors and design sings!
    it really, makes me …need to know …More about ‘how it came to Be’!
    How did it start?
    what made you think of it? come up with this design!? what materials did you use, acrylic?
    impressive 🙂


  2. Granted our house is basically varieties of grays and turquoisy blues (the turquoise sewing room having navy and red accents), but I think you made the best possible choices for your redo colors. In fact, I am a little bummed that the plan of purple-as-accent-color in my grey office didn’t happen, maybe I’ll revisit that…


  3. I just started following your blog, I would like to invite you to follow me at I make bead jewelry and have an etsy shop. You never know when you might like to buy some bead jewelry as a gift.
